I live in Thousand Oaks, CA. Newbury Park is part of Thousand Oaks. I thought we were zone 10. Do you know our heat zone? My zip is 91362
Thank you

Flowering crabapples require a prolonged winter chill for best performance. In your mild-winter climate, the following crabapples will grow and flower most reliably:
Malus 'Adams', 'Almey', 'Pink Spires', 'Radiant', 'Red Jade', 'Royalty' and 'Snowdrift'.
